His photograph was sent the compiler by his sister Mary Love Maltby (Mrs. Albert Tracy Higby).

Soon after her marriage she left Rochester, N.Y., and went to Dallas, Oregon; later Mr. Higby and his sister bought a fruit ranch at Lyle, where they were residing in 1910. Again they moved to Summerfield, Marion Co., Florida. Mr. Higby died in March 1918. Her letters were a delight for many years, containing valuable records, and photographs--one of herself with her twin brothers. I recall in one letter from Dallas, Oregon, she told of a wonderful experience she had; they were driving above a steep bank when the road gave way--one side of the carriage was simply on nothing. She wrote: "The presence of Victoria was so strong, I thought it meant death, but suddenly it was just as though an unseen presence lifted that side of the carriage and we were on firm ground." Victoria was a younger sister who died in 1865 aged 24. Mrs. Higby was an early member of the Maltby Association. She had no children.

She was a life-long friend to the compiler through her letters and furnished much material for this book. In one letter she wrote: "Regarding Father Maltby's old let- ters. Brother Henry was living in the Homestead and after Father's death, Henry's wife sold the most of them to an 'old paper and rag' pedlar."
